Matt Steinmetz Would Take Yao

Did anyone catch this guy last night during the broadcast when they were talking about Dwight Howard? They were hyping him up during the middle of the game at some point (perhaps during halftime?). They were about to end the little segment, when Jim Barnett asked Steinmetz who would you take if you could chose one player to start a franchise (knowing full well that they just spent an entire segment talking about Dwight Howard)?

Matt Steinmetz responds by saying.......

"I Would Take Yao Ming."

After listening to this, I was sitting with my jaw wide open in disbelief, while my roomate was on the floor rolling around laughing. Somebody, please tell me that this guy was joking. Because nobody, let alone a guy who is privilaged enough to be a reporter for sports, would every say they would pick Yao Ming over every other player in the NBA to start a franchise...
